12 But we request of you, brethren, that you 1aappreciate those bwho diligently labor among you, and chave charge over you in the Lord and give you 2instruction,
13 and that you esteem them very highly in love because of their work. aLive in peace with one another.
14 We urge you, brethren, admonish athe 1unruly, encourage bthe fainthearted, help cthe weak, be dpatient with everyone.
15 See that ano one repays another with evil for evil, but always bseek after that which is good for one another and for all people.
16 aRejoice always;
17 apray without ceasing;
18 in everything agive thanks; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.
19 aDo not quench the Spirit;
20 do not despise aprophetic 1utterances.
21 But aexamine everything carefully; bhold fast to that which is good;
22 abstain from every 1form of evil.
23 Now amay the God of peace bHimself sanctify you entirely; and may your cspirit and soul and body be preserved complete, dwithout blame at ethe coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.
24 aFaithful is He who bcalls you, and He also will bring it to pass.
